Kerr jokingly rips off Klay’s dad for endorsing Lakers over Dubs

The Los Angeles Lakers and Warriors are in the Western Conference semifinals. LeBron James vs Stephen Curry, Episode 5. Southern Cal vs. NorCal. Lake Show vs Dub Nation.

Much to Warriors head coach Steve Kerr’s disbelief, the playoff series also meant a separation for the Thompson family.

“The quote I noticed was [Klay Thompson] his dad said [Mychal Thompson] I’ll be rooting for the Lakers,” Kerr jokingly told NBC Sports Bay Area’s Festus Ezeri and Kerith Burke after the Warriors won Game 2.

Isn’t blood thicker than water? I can’t imagine rooting for my kids. That’s what I’m going to do, it will give Klay more motivation. “

Of course, Michael Thompson played four and a half years with the Lakers from 1987 to 1991, winning two championships in purple and gold. He has been a radio analyst for the Lakers for the past 20 seasons.

Earlier this week, Michal told The Sports Tribune’s Mark Medina that instead of choosing between his favorite team and his son, he simply supported a “great game of basketball.”

“Either way, we can’t fail,” Thompson told Medina. If the Lakers win, I’ll be happy. “

Klay Thompson may have been more motivated against his boyhood team and his father’s employer, but he scored 30 points on 11-of-18 shooting in Game 2. Three quarters of his first time.

After his iconic Game 2 performance, Thompson and the Warriors headed to the Arena in Los Angeles for Games 3 and 4.
